North Wales Wedding Photographer

Photographing organic and unposed weddings in north wales

Hello, welcome.

I am Marie and I have been a North Wales wedding photographer and loved every minute for many a year. If you would like an amazing second photographer to capture more of your wedding moments, my husband is available to photograph with me. We are lucky enough in North Wales to have some of the most stunning mountainous scenery in the UK. Find out more about me.

North Wales is one of the most beautiful locations in the UK to photograph in. With so many stunning venue choices, it is no surprise North Wales attracts couples from all over the UK for their wedding. I am of course biased. Having chosen to live in North Wales, albeit on the English border, so we are very lucky and spoilt for choice in locations.

Photographing in North Wales since 2009 and to date 300+ weddings under my belt, I feel privileged. We are a couple Marie & Jason and shoot either together or separately depending on if you would like two photographers. One of our favourite locations is Llyn Idwal in Snowdonia national park and we have done may photoshoots in that location.

Having photographed so many weddings, we now have an extensive blog of wedding stories and so scroll through to either check out some of our work or get ideas for your own wedding day. So if you are looking for a North Wales Wedding Photographer, then please get in touch.

We are lucky enough to have a family in Pwllheli and visit there as much as we can. Of course, the famous Abersoch is one that is always on our list. We also love camping and Barmouth is another of our favourite spots and we get stunning sunset pictures at that location.

As a wedding photographer, I like to shoot naturally. Therefore, if you are a couple who dislike posing for the camera and likes to get those candid moments, then I am the photographer for you.

NATURAL, ORGANIC, UnPOSED

It has been hard narrowing down and selecting photographs for this page, but I have also loved reliving the memories. I hope I have showed off all the fantastic North Wales locations. Particularly the beautiful beaches and mountainous backdrops provide a perfect canvas for photography.

A North Wales and Cheshire border wedding photographer

I live in Wrexham or the county of Flintshire. Bordering Cheshire and North Wales, I feel so lucky to be in this location and be near so many incredible places to visit. I originally lived in South Wales and moved up to the North at age 18. What struck me at first was the mountainous scenery.

Droving along the A55, you get a sense of the ever-changing landscape of North Wales. From the snow-capped mountains of Snowdonia to the incredible lakes in places like Bala. It really is a picture postcard world. It is easy to understand why the Welsh call it God’s country.

Beautiful locations to photograph in in North Wales

I have photographed in many locations all over North Wales, but of course some places must make the list. I have been to Shell Island to do an incredible beach shoot. Llandudno has been a firm favourite and particularly the Llandudno pier where I have photographed a pre -wedding shoot and a wedding at the Grand Hotel there. We also did some wedding photography at the Great Orme.

Of course, I have shot at some enormous castles as a backdrop. Chirk castle holds weddings and is a top location to visit. The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is another couple’s favourite, and I am requested that location a lot. This mean’s I must pronounce it! I am from a Welsh speaking family so you would think it would not be too hard, but Pontcysyllte always throws me! I think North Wales people pronounce things slightly different to South Wales, so that always throws me!

Photography holiday in North Wales

If you are looking for a holiday in North Wales and to do a spot of photography, what places might you fancy trying?

Well, of course visiting the top of Snowdon on a clear day at Sunset should be on your list. It is not the type of place you would want to carry heavy camera equipment in fact I have only ever taken a photo up there on my iPhone! However, if you fancy a nice, framed landscape on your wall then as gorgeous mountains views go, I love this one. Having said that Moel Famau which has a much shorter walk contains my favourite view in all North Wales.

So, one of the most famous churches has to be the Marble Church in Bodelwyddan found on the A55. It has the most incredible spire I believe to be 202 feet tall.

Other notable venues are The Outbuildings in Anglesey, or Nant Gwrtheyrn the Welsh language centre which has incredible views of the Llŷn Peninsula. We have photographed here several times and the drive down to the centre gets my heart pumping every time!

If you like barns you can have a rustic wedding at Plas Isaf in Corwen. Or if a stat;ley home is your thing, Bodrhyddan Hall. Bodrhyddan has the most stunning gardens, and if you like the idea of an outdoor wedding, then this may be one for the list.

How long I have been a photographer based in Wales

I began my photography journey in North Wales with my first ever wedding in 2009 in Plas Isaf Barn with its stunning views of the Dee valley. Since then, I have worked in some incredible venues.

On the list of some of the most popular has been The Quay Hotel in Llandudno, which has a watery view overlooking Conwy Castle in the distance.

Iscoyd park owned by the Godsall family is certainly one of my most popular North Wales venues. Found in Wrexham and bordering Whitchurch, it has some incredible gardens and the famous Whitewell church is close by for wedding ceremonies.

What makes North Wales stand out?

The rugged, natural beauty of North Wales means it attracts visitors from all over the UK. I photograph an enormous amount of weddings in North Wales for people who have come to the area just to get married.

As far as scenic towns go, North Wales has some of the rarest in the Wales. My new favourite is Abersoch and just as I am remembering a fantastci weekend we had there. I must recommend the Porth Ceiriad beach there. That is truly a hidden gem.

North Wales is also home to three of Wales’ five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, including the Llyn Peninsula, the Clwydian Range, and the Isle of Anglesey.
